Ayurvedic Experiment Day One Results
Sunday, February 17, 2013
This morning my breakfast was a smoothie with almond milk, Shakeology chocolate vegan mix, PB2 powdered peanut butter, frozen peaches and 1/4 of a frozen banana. Then I had 1/2 cup buckwheat cereal and another 1/2 cup of almond milk with a sliced banana. That kept me full for a while.
Then I got a little hungry before the Blue and Gold dinner for cub scouts and knew there wouldn't be healthy food there so I had the other half of my chicken breast Subway sub with added red leaf lettuce, a cup of red grapes and a caramel with pineapple Chobani bite greek yogurt. We went to the dinner and I had a chicken leg, thigh and wing (fried, of course) and a little bit of mashed potato with gravy. Which I should NOT have had since it was not hungry but felt obligated to have something and for some reason it is impossible for me to NOT eat when someone else is eating. What on earth is THAT about? I did NOT have any cake since I gave up sweets for Lent. I have had a little dull headache the past two days and was really tired around 6:45 tonight so I think that is a little bit of sugar withdrawal even though I really don't eat that many sweets.
We got home around 5:30 and I was a little hungry but didn't want to snack much so I had about a tablespoon of sunflower seeds.
That held me over until about 6 p.m. when I had one serving of leftover baked spaghetti and a kiwi fruit. Was okay until about 9:00 when I had 1/2 of a serving of Pecan Nut Thins. A little over 2000 calories for the day. Too many, but not as many as I have been having lately. I'm working on it and this is still an experiment. It will take a bit to get it right.
Tomorrow I still have off work since it's my day off for this week so I can do better but the challenge will be when I have to go back to work and I'm supposed to eat my biggest meal at lunch. I'm thinking about taking leftover supper food to work for lunch and having my usual lunch salad at dinner. We'll see how it goes.
